Does what it says on the box

  • Summary: Having already owned a TOMTOM from the states I was looking for something to get me by around Europe without having to fork out a lot. Got a good deal on Ebay on this unit and it is working out just fine. Dont expect any bells and whistles with this like bluetooth or voice control or turn by turn with street names to name a few. The display on my TOMTOM has a lot more than going than the Garmin eg. current speed/speed limit, current time while in navigation etc.

Good product for the price

  • Summary: I bought this product mainly because I was going on a trip to Italy and this model had US and European maps unlike most other products on the market in the US. The product worked well enough all over Italy, with some exceptions, stemming mainly from the fact that this is an older model. Also, this was a refurbished model (hence the low price of around $110), but this didn't cause any problems. The problems I had were: 1) The maps are somewhat outdated.

Worth the Price

  • Summary: Bought the Nuvi 270 new for $130 because I wanted the Europe maps for my next overseas trip. Won't be going overseas until next year but I made a road trip to Canada and for the most part, it worked well. I tried to find a few small local restaurants that showed on the GPS but it led me to residential complexes. Wish I got text-to-speech because I have to read the street names of the upcoming turns and take my eyes off the road. But a solid navigator.

simple setup and operation

  • Summary: Comments about Garmin nuvi 270 Automobile Navigator: We bought this for use in the U.K. where we will be living for the next three years. From our initial use we are very happy with the units performance. While it does not contain all the "whistles and bells" of the more expensive units, it's capabilities are more than adequate for the casual user. Great user interface and fast satellite acquisition.
  • Pros: Acquires Satellites Quickly, Compact, Easy Menus, Easy To Read, Easy To Set Up, Large Screen, Reliable Performance, Simple Controls
  • Cons: No postcode search in UK

Good for its European maps but...

9 July 2009
  • Summary: I bought this unit for a 2 week vacation in Holland, Germany and Italy. I also own a Nuvi 260 in the US, which only has U.S. & Canada maps and love everything about it (i.e. EXCELLENT). Here's the comparison of 270 with Nuvi 260: PROS: * European maps pre-loaded: more than 20 countries in Western and Eastern Europe * Safety camera and speed limit alert (not found in Nuvi 260) * Lots of Points of Interests * Compact - same 3.5" screen size as Nuvi 260 fits in pocket for...

Garmin nuvi 270 car receiver

  • Summary: Great GPS when traveling in Europe which was the reason I got it. I purchased the item in the US to make sure that it works since it has both maps the USA and Europe. I had no problems even using it in Berlin a complicated city to find interested places.

Great Product, but...

  • Summary: This is a great navigator! Works great in city areas, can set multiple destinations within one trip, I have yet to have a problem. The one thing I can’t figure out is downloading different voices for the navigator. The standard women’s voice is no problem, but I wanted some funny unique ones from the website. There is none. That is a small non-problem, though. I love the product, and would highly suggest it!
